Exilva Microfibrillated Cellulose vs. Fumed silica: anti-settling benefits from effective yield stress

By Mats Hjørnevik 11. June 2019

Exilva microfibrillated cellulose and fumed silica are both used for controlling the rheology of liquid systems, such as anti-settling and anti-sedimentation. But when we are comparing the two technologies, we also see differences. In this article, we will show you how the microfibrillated cellulose and fumed silica builds yield stress, and how they consequently can give good anti-settling and anti-sedimentation benefits.

Sedimentation Stability: The Importance of Yield Stress and Storage Modulus

By Jochum Beetsma 11. April 2019

Sedimentation of solid particles in liquid materials, like paints and inks, is caused by gravitational force pulling particles of high density down. In the worst case, sedimentation can result in settling, the formation of a hard layer of solid material on the bottom of the can. How to avoid this?
